|influenza virus vaccine, h1n1, live|
Interactions between your selected drugs
Oseltamivir may interfere with the immune response to influenza virus vaccine, H1N1, live. A person who has been treated with oseltamivir should generally not be vaccinated with influenza virus vaccine, H1N1, live until 48 hours after stopping oseltamivir. The immunizing doctor should be informed of recent therapy with oseltamivir so that appropriate measures and/or precautions can be taken. Similarly, a person who has been vaccinated with influenza virus vaccine, H1N1, live must generally wait two weeks before using oseltamivir unless otherwise directed by the doctor. If vaccination was given shortly before or during oseltamivir therapy, a revaccination may be necessary at some point. It is important to tell the doctor about all other medications being used, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to the doctor.
Drug Interaction Classification
The classifications below are a guideline only. The relevance of a particular drug interaction to a specific patient is difficult to determine using this tool alone given the large number of variables that may apply.
|Major||Highly clinically significant. Avoid combinations; the risk of the interaction outweighs the benefit.|
|Moderate||Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.|
|Minor||Minimally clinically significant. Minimize risk; assess risk and consider an alternative drug, take steps to circumvent the interaction risk and/or institute a monitoring plan.|
Do not stop taking any medications without consulting your healthcare provider.
